Tennis Class FAQ, Information and Policies

Fall/Winter 2016 Class Registration is Underway!

IMG 7119We offer a variety of levels of instruction from our Pee Wee/Beginner levels through the Future Stars, Competitive and High Performance programs that are designed for players seeking to achieve state and national rankings.

For players ages 5-10, the exciting QuickStart play format for learning tennis is heavily emphasized.  Using specialized equipment, shorter court dimensions, and modified scoring, young players quickly learn to rally and play actual games in a short amount of time.

For Teens through Adults, Beginner through Learn N Play groups are offered also on a weekday or weekend schedule. Recognizing that players want to play as soon as possible, instructors emphasize proper mechanics while using part of class time to model actual play format.

How to Find Out if a Class is Going to Meet Due to Inclement Weather

Cancellations due to bad weather will be announced on our phone message system. Please call 972-941-7170, option 1, if you are unsure whether your class will meet.

How Re-Scheduling a Class is Done when Cancelled by Instructor or High Point

Classes that do not meet due to bad weather (or other unexpected circumstances) will be rescheduled at a later date by your instructor. Please check directly with the instructor for date(s).

Makeups

Students are allowed to make up ONE class due to absence by attending a class of the same level on another day and/or time. This make-up MUST be completed within the the current class session & must be the same type class (ie taking Beginner, make up must be a Beginner class). Please check with the pro shop desk staff for the days/times of alternative "same level" classes.

Holidays

Classes generally do not meet on legal holidays and school holidays (PISD). To verify your class schedule, please check with your instructor.

Equipment

Students may use a High Point loaner or "demo" racquet for their first three classes. After three classes, all students should have their own racquet. If you or your child needs to purchase a racquet, our Pro Shop offers competitive prices combined with knowledgeable, professional advice and service. Our tennis professionals will assist you in proper racquet selection. Factors to consider include: grip size, frame weight, head size, flexibility, composition and proper stringing. We recommend that you "demo" any racquet before purchasing. Your instructor can bring "demos" to class for your use.

Individual Practice Opportunities

Hoppers (baskets) of practice balls and ball machines are available for rent. These are a great way to continue practicing outside of class sessions. Instructors and Pro Shop staff can show you how to adjust the ball machines for best use. Plus, we offer private instruction by our certified pros.

Class Advancement

Advancement through class levels is a very individual process. Some students will be ready to advance after only one session at each level. Other players, because of different levels of natural ability, practice time, and prior experience, may need to repeat a level before advancing to the next one. Please check with your instructor after the 2nd or 3rd class to determine the next most appropriate class for your child. After consulting with your instructor, please register for the next session as soon as possible to ensure a spot in the desired class.
